Broad consensus among component methods about election outcome


Today, Polly the parrot predicts that Clinton will garner 52.8% of the national two-party vote, compared to 47.2% for Trump. There is broad consensus among the six available component methods: Five predict a victory for Clinton while one predicts that Trump will win.

According to the econometric models Trump is currently leading with 50.4%.

Expert surveys predict a vote share of 53.5% for Clinton, which is the closest to PollyVote's forecast. With a vote share of 49.6% the econometric models differ the most from the PollyVote forecast.

The econometric models forecast of 49.6% for the Democrats is quite low relative to previous elections. In fact, this is the method's lowest forecast at that time in the campaign since 2004, when John Kerry ran against George W. Bush. At that time, econometric models predicted a vote share of 46.0% for John Kerry.
